Due to space considerations I have had to change the location of the Durga Tour. Our new location will be the Namaste Yoga Center in Cary (their website is http://www.namasteyogacenter.com/). This means that everyone who has already sent in their registration will be able to attend, and I believe we have two spaces left up for grabs. It's very unlikely that we will be able to register people at the door, so if you are still interested and coming and haven't registered yet, it's not too late, but you might want to get your stuff in the mail!
Namaste is a lovely space that is hidden away in a very bland looking corporate center. You may miss it when you come to the workshop if you don't know what to look for. It's in the building right next to the McDonalds and Citgo station at the intersection of High House Road and Cary Parkway (more detailed driving locations to this intersection are available on the Namaste website).
Please email me if you have any questions. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Come out and see me perform this Friday night at 9:30 and 10:00 PM at Oliver Twist, a cute and stylish tapas lounge/martini bar in North Raleigh. Info about Oliver Twist, including driving directions, is available at http://www.olivertwistlounge.com/
Blue Moon Dance Company is happy to announce that we will be presenting two fabulous Fall Workshops: Costuming for Tribal Dance and Rhythm and Motion for Dancers, Saturday, October 7 at The Solution Center, Brighton Hall, 1101 Slater Road, Durham (RTP). Costuming for Tribal Dance:
Wondering what all you can do with that Kuchi necklace you covet? Or how to master those traditional tribal facial tattoos? Are you dying to look like a Belly Dance Superstar without breaking the bank? Then Costuming for Tribal Dance is the workshop for you! We will cover topics such as makeup tips, facial tattoos, costuming on a budget, hair and headdresses, as well as maximizing your costuming mileage. Ideas for traditional to trendy genres of tribal costuming will be featured. (10:30 AM - Noon) Rhythm and Motion for Dancers:
Learn how to recognize musical phrases and analyze both rhythms and melodies for more expressive improv and choreography. Basic rhythms will be reviewed, and concepts such as recognizing the down beat, counting, keeping the tempo, dancing to live music and ideas for structuring your improvisation and choreographies will be included. Applicable for all styles and skill levels of bellydance. And best of all, Blue Moon Dance Company's own musicians will join us during the workshop! (1:00 - 3:00 PM)
Details and registration forms for both workshops are now available at www.bluemoonbellydance.com/classes.html
Be sure to also check out our website for our Fall class schedules and other upcoming events- such as Haflaween 3D: Resistance is Futile, which is selling out quickly!
I am happy to announce that I will be hosting Tempest and Ariellah of The Durga Tour
for their stop in NC on Wednesday, October 11. The Durga Tour is the first Gothic, Sacred and Experimental belly dance tour of the US! During their stay, Tempest and Ariellah will be sharing their unique dance styles with us in a two-hour workshop. More details to come as we work out the time, location, and topic.
Both Tempest and Ariellah were recently featured on the DVD "Gothic Bellydance: The Darker Side of Fusion" released by World Dance New York. Tempest is a pioneer of the Gothic style of Bellydance, the designer of the ubiquitous Corset Belt, and will soon be featured on her own instructional DVD, "Belly Dance for Beautiful Freaks". Ariellah was a founding member of The Indigo, Rachel Brice's dance company, in 2002, and currently dances with dance partner Suzan Revah in their company Noor Belly Dance.
